    Mysterious and terrifying 8100 problem...?

    Advertisement



    Hi I have a mysterious and scary 8100 pearl problem. I was minding my own business when the pearl started going crazy... it texted my friend 10 times with blank texts- then 20 times, then selected an old email and tried sending 20 draft emails to that address- etc etc it wont let me make calls into the keyboard only selects from older incoming calls, but when I make calls it beeps, cuts me off, and randomly hangs up on my calls- its rolls between apps and won't let me select anything- I took the pearl out and put it back, no help , did a hard reboot multiple times, and its getting worse, the pearl itself rolls over things but doesn't work at all to select things and the phone keeps flipping around between apps at lighting speed. is this a corruption issue or a hardware issue? Should I reinstall the OS? I've only have the phone for 4 mos, makes me miss the days of phones with wires into the wall....?

    http://blackberryforums.pinstack.com..2_1_109a.html this is the download for the latest recommended 8100 OS, its from Rogers, Ive put it on both of mine and my wifes 8100. Dont forget to delete the vendor XL files before you install it

    Im not a tech, but it sounds like it. This new OS is very stable and works really well. Its worth a try, if you're not on Rogers, like I said you"ll have to delete the vendor xml file after to download it to your PC

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~yeah tha definitely sounds like a hardware issue, If you have trouble installing the OS that Chokem provided, you may have to wipe the handheld first, but give it a shot...good luck! Post your progress

    I have seen some strange things happen with other models. If an OS upgrade doesn't work, then its time for a replacement.
